Where was Senator Anti-Pork when the roll was called last night on the ridiculous bailout bill loaded up with special interest corporate welfare? Was he taking names and kicking ass? No, he was in the tank with the rest of the sheeples in the Senate. “Country first,” “maverick,” “a fighter for you and me”? What a joke! He had two issues that could have overcome all the problems Republicans face this year: “drill, drill, drill” and “reform, don’t bailout.” He fumbled both of them. He either lacked the understanding, the political guts, or the energy to exploit them. It is becoming increasingly obvious to everyone that his only “maverick” tendencies are when he elects to join with his Democrat friends to kick conservatives and libertarians to the curb. Be sane. Blank the Presidential line this year.
And once again Quin Hillyer astonishes me. After a really good column on the bailout, he notes as “rising stars” Paul Ryan and Eric Cantor. Huh? Yes, they had some better (not great, but better) ideas of how to deal with the financial crisis. But, Quin, they voted for that miserable bailout bill! They know how ridiculous it is, and they voted for it anyway! I don’t plan to support any political promotion for anyone who votes for this monstrosity. Let them stew in the House. They deserve nothing better.p>I would hope that some conservative periodical (Human Events?) will publish the final vote on the bailout bill. If someone does, I encourage everyone on this blog to cut it out, put it up on your bulletin board, and never forget who was with the corrupt politicians/community organizers/financiers and who was with the citizens of the American Republic. br> — Stephen Zierak br> Kansas City, Missouri /p> p> ALASKANS ON PALIN br> Re: James P.

A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
